This is the third and final volume of the catalogue series published on occasion of the small-scale exhibitions that the Museu Picasso has organized to commemorate its fiftieth anniversary. It is dedicated to the seventy-nine exhibitions that it has put on throughout its history: given the impossibility of describing them individually, the author, Montse Torres, offers us a good synthesis of the spirit and the main guidelines that inspired them.

The museum hasn't only dedicated exhibitions to the figure of Picasso but also to many artists of the avant-garde and has counted on the collaboration of institutions, curators, and specialists who have contributed to presenting exceptional works and innovative discourses to the visitors. Furthermore, the book allows us to understand how the exhibitions have evolved thanks to the evolving techniques available, and how the same topic has been dealt with from very different perspectives, depending on the moment in which the exhibition was presented.
